How To Write A Best Selling Fantasy Novel

Make Notes

18th June, 2004. 9:53 am.(hca)

Would anyone be willing to read and comment on a sci-fi short story of mine? I'm pretty happy with it up until the end, which may fall a little flat. (Someone else--the person who inspired the story--agrees that it might fall a little flat, but doesn't have any advice for how to fix that. I'd be looking for advice.)

So what do you do when you write a story, send it out, and it gets rejected a couple of times? One person said my story had "good writing but didn't keep my interest". So do I rewrite? Cut? Think they are idiots and send the story to someone else as-is?

I know you can't make an official decision without actually reading it, but overall, do you edit when you get rejected?

Current mood: apathetic.

Can someone explain fanfic to me? I'm really not trying to be a snob, but I just don't understand how people can put so much effort into writing something that a) they will never be allowed to sell, and b) could possibly get them sued.

Has fanfic ever worked out for anyone? I am not counting that the mere writing pracitce makes you a better writer. I'm talking about someone getting a job as a script writer, for instance.

Current mood: curious.

20th April, 2004. 5:46 pm. Synopses and outlines(hca)

Hey folks.

I have a synopsis and oh, three-quarters of an outline (required by some agencies), and I firmly believe they suck.

Part of my problem is that I have nothing to compare them to. I know I asked for samples once before and no one had any to share... but would anyone be willing to read the synposis and outline I have written, and offer suggestions? Or could you point me to a friend of a friend of a friend who knows what they're supposed to look like?

Many thanks.
